Spary captures both the science and the sensuality that drove the culture of eating during the French Enlightenment. This is a richly textured history of the transformations that occurred in food science and gustatory practices from 1670 to 1760: it reveals the complex web of relations that bound knowledge about food with knowledge tout court in eighteenth-century Paris, a city that was both a metropolis of exotic consumption and a highly public arena for the display and contestation of claims to learned authority about food. Yet Spary gives us far more than just a new history of eating, taste, and gastronomic connoisseurship: she also provides a groundbreaking account of the Enlightenment, understood not as a neatly packaged ideological movement but as a highly localized process whose aspirants ranged well beyond such famous figures as Voltaire, Rousseau, and Diderot. With its wealth of insights into the history of the body as well as French culture, Eating the Enlightenment offers abundant food for thought for scholars and students in a wide range of fields.".
